The device Samsung S10e weighs 150g, which seems that it is not a heavy phone like others. The front glass and back part are made of Gorilla Glass 5, and the frame is made of aluminum. The height of the phone is 142.2 mm, the width is 69.9 mm and 7.9 mm thin.
The Dynamic AMOLED touch screen has a lower resolution of 1080*2280 pixels that is lower than other phones of S series. But colors, brightness, and contrast of the phone is not so bad. Besides, it is easy to grip in one hand and capture photos because of its 5.8 inches screen size.
The octa-core device has Qualcomm SM8150 Snapdragon 855 processor that helps to serve well to its customers. In Samsung Galaxy S10e, 6GB RAM is available, and there is 128GB/256GB internal storage that can be expanded using the inner microSDXC card slot.
The phone has a dual-lens rear camera setup, which gives you less service than the Galaxy S10 or the S10e. There is a 12MP wide camera with f/1.5-2.4 aperture and a 16MP ultra-wide camera with f/2.2 aperture. This rear camera is featured with LED flash, auto-HDR, panorama. At the front of the phone, it features a 10MP selfie camera with f/1.9 aperture that has dual video call and auto-HDR features. The Samsung Galaxy S10e has a wide camera lens, which means you can get decent shots at night time, but there is a lack of optical zoom feature. However, this device is capable of capturing great shots/images.
The 3100 mAh non-removable Li-ion battery in which fast charging and wireless charging capacity are available will serve you a thorough day without interruption. The Samsung S10e runs Android 9 Pie, which means you can take advantage of digital wellbeing tools, better notification management, improved battery management, etc.
Besides the PIN and Pattern unlock system for security, one can use the fingerprint sensor for security purpose, and using these systems are very easy and quick as well.
To conclude the Samsung Galaxy S10e review, let’s check out its price. It is the cheapest device among all S series that was released in March 2019 in Bangladesh. The Samsung galaxy s10e price in Bangladesh is 59,900 BDT, and the Samsung galaxy s10e price in India is 47,900 Rs. And the launched date was 8 March 2019.
